MOSCOW, November 21. /ITAR-TASS/. Egypt is safe for Russians visiting Red Sea tourist areas, Russia's Foreign Ministry reported.
“The situation in Egypt has been stabilizing recently,” the ministry said. “The state of emergency and curfew have been lifted. Egyptian authorities are providing necessary security and order in resorts on the Red Sea shore.”
But things were still tense elsewhere, officials said, including Cairo and other big cities where protest rallies had taken place and protesters had clashed with security forces and police.
This did not preclude Russian citizens visiting Red Sea resorts but they were advised to "be cautious and avoid travelling beyond resort zones to cities and areas with persisting risks of terrorist acts and social tension”.
Russian citizens were advised in August not to visit Egypt. Foreign ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich warned at the time that "internal conflict is escalating... amid increasing tension and violence", noting that "clashes and disorder that started in the capital have spilled over onto other towns... including those visited by Russian tourists.
